The Bridge Academy is a truly exceptional school. Our students’ progress is consistently excellent for GCSE and A level, and our superb personal development offer means that over the last three years we have been national debating champions, enjoyed a host of sporting successes and won both the Incorporated Society of Musicians Gold Award and the Hackney Mayor’s award for music.

Why choose us?

  • Excellent student behaviour and highly supportive Senior Leadership Team.
  • An achievement-oriented culture where students work hard and it is cool to be smart.
  • A warm/strict approach, meaning that our high standards do not come at the expense of inclusion.
  • The belief that teaching must be a sustainable profession: clear systems and structures, sensible approach to feedback and no ‘late night culture’.

We are seeking a Design Technology Teacher (Textiles), who is totally aligned to our values of Hard Work, Integrity and Kindness, and completely committed to our mission: to ensure that every student will succeed at a good university or equivalent, thrive in their chosen field and live a great life.
